DALLAS - A Dallas police officer has died of COVID-19.
Officers escorted the body of Sr. Cpl. Arnulfo Pargas, Jr. from UT Southwestern Medical Center to a funeral home in northwest Dallas.
Police said he died Thursday after a three-month battle with the virus.
Last month, a fundraiser was held at the family’s ice cream shop to help pay for his medical bills.
Those who knew him referred to him as the West Dallas Hero. Chief Eddie Garcia called him as a great man.
